Racing is shifting to the Southern Hemisphere and near the equator ...chasing summer and warmer weather. 70.3 Taiwan suffered a swim cancellation and there were a bunch of 2nd places earned.
Michelle Wu (AUS), Guy Crawford (NZL) and Kate Bevilaqua (AUS) were all in action in for the Taiwan 70.3. The surf was rough so the race was converted to a duathlon and Michelle topped the women's race while Kate and Guy took home 2nd place in their respective races.
The Bahamas hosted the UWC olympic distance event. Tim Don (GBR) and Gwen Jorgensen (USA) raced to 2nd place finishes with numerous blueseventy athletes placing behind them. Notably, Ben Collins (USA) was 3rd in the mens's race and Sara McLarty was 5th on the women's side.
In Ironman Florida Ashley Clifford (USA) showed great form and earned 2nd in a star-powered field. Pedro Gomes (PORT) was 5th on the men's side. Both of these athletes are coming on to race just 3 weeks out of Kona.
